My overall cholesterol is now down to 156. My HDL is almost on target, but my LDL is still way high. I can't swallow Omega3 pills - too big - and the chewables are N.A.S.T.Y. My doctor recommended flaxseed, but my mom had a lot of intestinal problems with it and can't take it. I already have IBS, so I'm cautious about that. Anyone else use flaxseed? Any problems? Can you get it in pill form? I know if I get the stuff you sprinkle on yogurt or something, my sensory issues will keep me from eating it. IOW, I'll gag on it.
